Run With Fire

Correfoc in the local Valenciano lingo. You really don't need any more explanation. As I say to the children in my class, we don't do things like this back in my country. (Worse luck!)

As is often the case, this Spanish tradition begins with some music...

The Other Fallas

Don't make the mistake that we made, of assuming that Fallas only happens in the city of Valencia. Far from it. A number of local towns also get in on the act. Burriana (or Borriana, in the local Valenciano lingo) has 19 Fallas of its own. While none of them match the scale of the biggest in the city, the quality of the artwork rivals anything in the Comunidad Valenciana. Here are some works-in-progress.
